Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:10


10:10 For with the heart - Not the understanding only. Man believeth to righteousness - So as to obtain justification. And with the mouth confession is made - So as to obtain final salvation. Confession here implies the whole of outward, as believing does the root of all inward, religion.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:10


Ro 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness. Such a belief, the faith that saves, is a power over the life. It influences the actions and brings us into "the obedience of faith", in yielding to Christ, wherein is found pardon. With the mouth confession is man unto salvation. The faith of the heart must be openly confessed. This is a test of the faith. Unless Christ had provided such tests as confession and obedience we could not know whether ours was really a belief of the heart. That our faith moves us to confession is to us an assurance of salvation. The whole Christian life is a confession.

    So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing Undiluted Word of God.! From the Bible or True Men Of God. Beware, there are many fake words out there..! Lord Help Us daily that we don't fall but stay True to Your Words Only.! For there is Joy when we hear Your True Teachings.. Thank You Jesus..!

    Amen! Hearing the word of God results in confidence and ambitions about seeking more of God and within this journey faith ignites. My thoughts is, faith is a strong belief. We cannot have faith in ignoring the word of God. The word of God is to continuously be heard by and not be ignored daily.

    It's true, having faith in God's Word brings you peace of mind, and you can mediate and have discernment in the choices you make in your life.
  • MockingBird
    Faith comes by hearing God's word over , and over , and over , and over , and over , and over , again , and again , and again , and again , and again , and again . Once I've heard , it is time to act on that faith and be doing God's word. God expects me to be doing His word as well as hearing His word . I expect God to do things for me and He in turn expects me to do things for Him as in obeying Him !! Praise God Forever more !!

    Abraham had faith even as he took Isaac to sacrifice him to the Lord, and the Lord provided a ram! God is true to His Word, we never have to be afraid that He will require more of us than we can give. Jesus was His perfect sacrifice for us. God gave it ALL for us so that we can come to Him as we are through Jesus.
